The Boy Scouts of America is a leading youth organization when it comes to safety. BSA policy, effective June 1, 2010:
Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position. New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training before submitting an application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time the application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins. Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
Beginning in the summer of 2019, the Heart of New England Council BSA requires completion of Youth Protection Training every year.
The training takes about 1 hour.

After you get your application and CORI form to the Scoutmaster with the YPT training certificate, he'll get other signatures and submit the application to the Council. They will issue your ID number, which you will enter in your profile in my.scouting.org. This will enable your training status to be viewed by those of us who track this. To add that to your account:
